Bayleys Knight Frank Foyer

The grandeur of the Bayleys Knight Frank Foyer creates a dramatic welcome, with its sheer wall of undulating glass and views to the forecourt beyond. An impressive marble staircase leads to balconies overlooking the foyer. It’s one of Christchurch’s iconic settings for your most memorable event.


The Bayleys Knight Frank Foyer accommodates up to 500 guests for cocktail receptions or up to 300 people seated, depending on stage and dance-floor requirements.

We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you both and your fabulous teams for making Saturday such a fabulous night. Everything was seamless and your staff went above and beyond. The venue looked brilliant, the food was outstanding, and our people had a great time. We can’t thank you enough for all the effort and energy to make it such a success. It will be a hard one for us to top next year!

Thanks again for your help to make such a special night.
